Question about Vacuums
I retired from fixing battery powered cleaning equipment a few years ago. The problem with wireless is that the batteries don't hold up. They will work fine for a few weeks- then they start to run out of juice after only a few min. On most rechargeables if you don't run them down completely, they only charge to the point you last put it on the charger (It's called battery memory). I personally think the rechargeables are a waist of money, and, when the batteries start to go- are frustrating. Just get an upright, with a side hose. I've got two at home that are over 20 years old. I only had to change the beater bar brush and belt twice in that time. No more than $150 bucks should be your price point for a vacuum used at your own home.

Unfortunately alot of people buy this model because of the electrolux name, but it is actually made by eureeka. Aerus-Electrolux is the manufacturer of the high quality machines of our parents day.

SOURCE: vacuum not picking up
At the top of your wand, do you have a plastic swivel that cover a hole in the wand? This is for when you are cleaning curtains, and if that is open, or cracked you will loose suction there... also check your hose for cracks, or breaks. If it were in the shop I would put a gauge on it... normal suction is about 80-95 inches of water lift at the end of the hose. Once you have check each section of the hose, and wand, check the housing for cracks, a missing gasket (Very Good Reason For Lack Of Suction) As to your Filter, how long have you used that one filter, you can clean them for a while, but once a paper filter gets full of FINE dust you won't get it all out, you will have to replace the filter itself at that point. I hope this was helpful.

Sounds like you have a clog. There are screws in the back of the vacuum that you can undo and find the clog. If you need assistance or if that doesn't solve the problem.

Testimonial: "The answer was right on. I did find I had a clog in the attachment hose. thankyou"
With years of use, you will collect a layer of "micro dust" on the impeller (the fan part) which reduces the efficiency. A toothbrush and some mild cleaner with gently scrubbing will restore it's power.
The impeller is that parts that spins that you can see when you take the top off to fill the water tank.
Hope this is the answer that you need!

There is a foam ring filter in the bottom of the canister that collects the dirt. It screws off of the bottom on the canister. Take outside and shake it out. It fixed our suction problem.
